I can eat grilled cheese sandwiches again

I made a grilled cheese sandwich a few days ago, using your regular keto bread (the one in the golden color bag). Did it like my mom used to make. Buttered the outer sides of the bread, placed one side on the heated griddle, placed the cheese on top then the other slice. I did watch it closely so it wouldn’t burn. Flipped it a few times until I got that golden brown color and the cheese was visibly melted inside. Served it with a dill pickle slice and wow wow wow. Another favorite meal using this really great tasting bread. You definitely have a winner with this bread.

Why don’t you use your own bread in the photos? That’s just plain old regular white bread. Tell me your bread brand doesn’t grill very well and probably looks bad so you swapped it our for Wonder bread. And I hardly think most people need a detailed recipe on how to make a basic grilled cheese.
